A nod to Andy Lee

October, 1, 2013
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Mark Simon of ESPN Stats & Information gives rare weekly kudos to an overlooked standout -- the punter.

The Week 4 honor goes to Cincinnati's Kevin Huber. However, San Francisco's outstanding Andy Lee led Simon's list of honorable mention punters for the week.

Here is what Simon had to say about Lee's performance in the 35-11 win at St. Louis:

Putting Andy Lee in a dome is almost unfair. Lee had seven punts against the Rams last Thursday, five of which he boomed more than 50 yards. His 54.7 yard gross average was the best he's had in any of the 46 regular-season games in which he's punted at least seven times.
